Saint Bridget of Sweden

In winter 2010 my former school - Tallinn School No 21 - invited me to give a history lesson to high school students.

There is a tradition in Estonia that recent graduates give classes at their former schools after a few years of leaving the school. I decided to talk about Saint Bridget of Sweden. She is considered by some to be the first feminist of Europe. After her husband's death she travelled to Rome where she succeeded in founding the Bridgettine order. In 1412 a Bridgettine cloister and church was opened in the vicinity of Tallinn. When I was a kid growing up in Pirita (the name derives from Bridget), the ruins of this place, was one of my favourite playgrounds, so it was nice to revisit this memory.

Tom Peacock My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542} Nov 21, 2022
Laura Hobson I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
